Recently I got to have my hair styled into a braided crown courtesy of Vera. I met the ladies behind Vera a couple of months ago and they were in the process of setting up a site that brings hair stylists and make up artists into your home instead of having to go to the salon. It was described to me as the airbnb of beauty care. It sounded pretty amazing to me just thinking about all the time you could save by having someone come to you instead of the other way around. Not only that but there being a dedicated site to replace all of the guess work and the calling around.
To really jump start the business they were offering complimentary services to introduce the concept to people and get some honest feedback. I was pumped to have a Professional Hair stylist come to my home and create some hair magic. Especially since I have super straight and slick hair.
It was super easy to prepare. I chose a hair style ahead of time and then a few minutes before my appointment I set a chair in front of the giant mirror in my living room and put a side table next to it. I also had a few candles going and some music in the background so it wasn’t so quiet.
When my hair stylist arrived we introduced ourselves and she took a few minutes to set up. She brought everything she needed and all I had to do was take a seat and enjoy. She assured me that despite my super sleek hair she could make the braided style I chose work for me. Yeah! Her trick: lots of dry shampoo and teasing. You should have seen how much body it gave my hair. Amazing! I have no idea why I still haven’t purchased that particular hair care product.
Anyhow once all the teasing was done the braiding happened pretty quickly. She sprayed it all down with some hairspray and done! I wore the braid all day and then slept in it. The back had come out a bit overnight so I took it half out and did a quick pinning of the rest in the back and wore it for another day. It was great! It was also pretty exciting to know that my hair can do more than I thought it could. Woo!
Thank you Ericka for such a fun and beautiful hair style and thank you Vera for setting it all up!
